Medicine Buddha Empowerment

How to Help, Heal and Be Healed with Khen Rinpoche
Fri. July 29, 2016 from 6:00-9:00pm

Where does suffering come from and is there a way to heal them? If we are willing to work at the deepest levels of body and mind, we can remove the subtlest causes of suffering through the practice of Medicine Buddha. An empowerment is a ceremony that teaches us how to do the guided meditation of Medicine Buddha on our own and with others.
